The Spelman College Museum of Fine Art offers a number of volunteer opportunities. Experiences include working closely with the Museum staff to organize educational programs, guide tours, manage collections, install exhibitions, learn about administration and participate in special events.
The Museum is grateful for the efforts of two dedicated volunteer groups: the Alumnae Corps of Volunteers and the Spelman Museum Ambassadors.
Alumnae Corps of Volunteers
Alumnae are vital contributors to Spelman College. These successful professional women, many of whom have retired to the Atlanta area, share a sense of service and civic pride in contributing to both their alma mater and their communities. Inspired by their long-term commitment to the College, this dedicated group of volunteers provides invaluable services to the Museum.
Spelman Museum Ambassadors
Consisting primarily of Spelman students, but open to Atlanta University Center students and art enthusiasts, this group ensures that the Museum is staffed and open to the public. Museum Ambassadors assist the Museum staff with daily operations, art handling, program development, project implementation and collections management.
Volunteer benefits and experiences include the opportunity to:
- Organize and participate in public events and programs
- Participate in private training sessions by Museum staff and exhibition-related arts professionals
- Receive a 10 percent discount at the Museum shop
- Attend appreciation events and receive special gifts
- Enjoy great hands-on experiences

The work of volunteers who generously give their time and energy to the Museum benefits all visitors. Volunteers are a vital link between the Museum and the broader communities of Spelman College, Atlanta and the region. Volunteering affords the opportunity to learn more about the arts and work closely with dedicated arts professionals. Becoming involved will enrich your life.
